Irresistible Bags & Pouches - Yoko Saito & Quilt Party
"Patchwork is most often made from a variety of fabrics. The color combinations that one sees are often inspired by things we observe in our everyday life. It might be from tiles in a showroom or an outfit that someone is wearing.
"My favorite bluish-gray color is what my mind's eye sees at twilight when visiting Scandinavia. Sweden, and the Nordic region, is one of my favorite places to visit. I am drawn to the local colors and the clean and simple designs. Perhaps I am also fascinated with the myriad of handmade items depicting the culture and nature of the land by those living there.
"The colors and fabric used in the projects in this book are from our own everyday encounters with the world around us. We hope that thay might be some of your favorites and that the charm of simple patchwork projects will reach out and touch your heart and those around you."
